This is an illustrated edition of an occult classic that outlines an ageless wisdom. Since 1908, it has served as a study of basic hermetic teachings. In ancient times (and even today), these teachings were not understood by the lay person, but were readily understood by students, after the axioms and principles had been explained and exemplified by the Hermetic Initiates and Masters to their Neophytes.

"The purpose of this work is not the enunciation of any special philosophy or doctrine, but rather is to give to the students a statement of the Truth that will serve to reconcile the many bits of occult knowledge that they may have acquired, but which are apparently opposed to each other and which often serve to discourage and disgust the beginner in the study. Our intent is not to erect a new Temple of Knowledge, but rather to place in the hands of the student a Master-Key with which he may open the many inner doors in the Temple of Mystery through the main portals he has already entered." -- The Kybalion

Illustrations in the print edition are black and white. Illustrations in the ebook (epub) are color.

About the Author

The authors of The Kybalion chose to be anonymous, possibly because the principles and philosophy it outlines cannot be accredited to any person. Living around the turn of the twentieth century, speculation abounds on their identity. There are some who make the argument that William Walker Atkinson (1862 - 1932) was its sole author.
